Information Circular No 12/2010: Pension & Gratuity Entitlements 2010.

By Deputy General Secretary

As all members will be aware the deductions in pay introduced in the budget last year ranging from 5% to 8% did not effect pension entitlements of those retiring in 2010. 

PDFORRA have been informed that there are discussions across Government Departments with a view to a possible extension of the 2010 deadline in order to avoid a destabilising rate of retirement among public servants including the Defence Forces.

PDFORRA would like to make it quite clear contrary to uninformed comment on the ground no agreement has been reached on a possible extension at this time and if there is an extension we will inform the membership as it happens.
